Addiction 2023.1

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I'd buy the ticket and we could drive together so parking is covered. Concessions are disappointing. We usually eat before or after the game. Tickets
Are $16 per seat per game. Parking is $10 per game.

Today I've gotten four or five six emails from Facebook about someone wanting to be my friend, whose name I oddly don't recognize.

Was one not enough?

I don't Facebook so I can't help you. Makes me glad I'm in your inner circle.

I try to avoid paying for parking. That means a 1 mile walk to and from the ballpark for D-Backs games, and about a mile and a half each way for Sun Devils.

Iím doing a half in 2 weeks, my goal is 7:45 pace, not great but good enough. I did 11 at an 8:00 pace last Sunday with the wind in my face 20-30mph so I should be okay.

Running away from danger, not stupid. Running for fun, idiotic.

Flobikes or subscribe to a VPN. I'm currently watching on Flobikes but I payed for a VPN and will drop Flobikes when it expires soon. Flobikes is expensive. My main reason to subscribe to a VPN is I can't stand Rob Roll's voice on Peacock/NBC.

Like looking in a mirror. My big problem is I run crooked now and then it throws my back. Need to get back to PT and, after moving, get a Pilates machine. That helps.
